The questions below have been raised to prompt broad discussion on the SuSanA forum. Please visit the links below to view the discussions and join the debates:

1) How are water, sanitation, hygiene issues addressed in nutrition interventions (WASH in Nutrition approach)? Examples on the household and community level
2) Where do you see advantages and where disadvantages in a one-way integration and a two-way integration of WASH and nutrition?

Dear ENN community,

I am part of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) and engaged in the thematic discussion that is currently ongoing as you can see from the links above. As the SuSanA community mainly comprises of people from the WASH sector, for a cross-cutting issue like WASH & Nutrition, it is mostly fruitful to also consider views from nutritionists.

I would therefore like to invite you to take part and share your experiences and perspectives about if and how best to integrate those two sectors.

Especially in terms of integrated policy making, the WASH sector could learn from the nutrition framework of SUN countries. What are recommendations from you for the WASH community? What are possible incentives to better link the sector policies?

Thanks a lot for your feedback! http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/246-theme-3-progressing-the-agenda--what-do-we-want-to-achieve/17663-wash-and-nutrition-the-challenges-of-policymaking

Best,
Jona

Dear all,

One of the key challenges for WASH and nutrition is how to integrate programming of interventions and ensure consistent messaging across sectors.

Further discussion of this currently ongoing on this link:
